Michael Hearsch started his first dental laboratory business as a 24 year old in 1983. Four years later he established his current denture clinic and laboratory – Michael Hearsch Dental Services.
With over 35 years experience, Michael leads his team in providing complete and partial dentures and mouthguards to his clients of all ages. He notes that his goal “is to provide quality, well fitting dentures that look great and function well and mouthguards that properly protect his client’s teeth”.
In terms of mouthguards, Michael comments that his custom fitted guards are a better option than the boil and bite style bought in sports stores because they “ fit exactly onto your teeth, do not move, allow you to breath freely and after a short time of adaptation, to speak normally”.
Based at 18 Ashley Road in Chermside West, Michael’s clients include members of the general public from all over Brisbane as well as dentists from all over Brisbane and regional Queensland.
Michael is also a member of the Australian Dental Prosthetist Association of Queensland and notes that his clinic “adheres to the code of ethics laid down by the association. All of our instruments are auto-claved or disposable for your protection”.
Michael is always looking to improve the business, and as part of that process engaged David from de Blonk Smith Young to help ensure his financial reporting is accurate and that his tax and compliance needs are up to date and efficiently handled. Along the way David has provided a ‘sounding board’ for Michael and Susan as they make important business and personal decisions.
“David has helped us to get better control of our business finances, which is letting us consider options for our personal investment plans outside the business” notes Michael.
Michael is very much a family man and the business is a family affair, with Michael’s wife Susan and his three girls undertaking key administration and client service support tasks when they are needed. As the practice grows, Michael’s key goals remain to provide high quality and personal service to his clients and to maintain a happy and balanced family life.
